Book Nerd Delight

Reading is at the heart of my weekly Sabbath practice. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see what I'm reading each week, or follow me on SnapChat (@katarmstrong1), and you'll see what I'm reading any given day. Sometimes it's InStyle magazine and other times it's serious theology books.

My girl Allison encouraged me to list out all the books I read in 2015. Turns out I read 50 books. I know. Hey, don't hate. You have your thing, and I have mine. Below is the complete list of all the books I read in 2015 (thanks to Allison), and I had a blast categorizing these reads and giving out fake awards. I'd love to hear about what you are reading and why you love it. Send me your recommendations below...
